Duke's Pocius won't return for 5th season

Duke junior guard Martynas Pocius will not return for a fifth season of eligibility, the school announced Sunday.

Pocius has suffered from foot injuries throughout his career and will not return to the team next season after receiving a medical redshirt in 2007-08.

He is averaging 1.5 points in 19 games this season and has totaled just six minutes over the past 10 games. – Ken Tysiac

AKA Coach K told him, "You're done here. Go back to Lithuania and don't let the door hit you on the way out". Pocius and his abysmal shooting percentage will not be missed.

Pocius was a kid with talent for whom you hoped the light would some day come on. Sadly, it never did. Hope the guy does well in his future endeavors, because you could tell he tried. In truth, though, his roster spot (and scholly) will be better used by someone else.
